    Anyone had a chance to check out this recently published coffee table book which is garnering a fair bit of well earned praise and attention?

    While I am certainly happy to see a mountain biker on the cover I can’t help but chuckle slightly at the irony given our rather colourful past (and present) association with the Ravines and the trails we love to ride.

    A little about the project:

    This project was a commission from the City of Toronto Planning and Parks, Forestry and Recreation Divisions and is in part, related to many City initiatives such as the Ravine Strategy, the designation of 86 new biodiversity areas called Environmentally Significant Areas (ESA’s) and the establishment of the Rouge as Canada’s first and only urban national park.

    Any keen eyes able to place the rider on the cover (trail name/ location)?

    Yep – that is the end of Topo (riders left) and the start of Catalyst (riders right climb) camera man facing NNW.
    Looks like Leaside Towers in background (85 Thorncliffe Park Dr)

    @neville-park I thought so, but I am not quite as acquainted with the Don as many here.

    Which brings me to my next chuckling point…. that would make that trail, ahem, unsanctioned, would it not? I mean, as in not part of Crother’s Woods.
